Sixpoint Brewery

Party Hat IPA

Nice pale-yolk opacity with egg-white fuzz. Even lacing of desert dunes. Grapefruit-pineapple nose leans tropical, but shows sweet lemon pith on the back. Orange blossom and sweet basil flower. Active mineral component to the sip, lemon oils and grapefruit on the slug, and a resinous and bitter hempseed on the gulp; though sweet citrus sails through. There are competing elements here, that defy cohesion; flashes of brilliance, and tumult. Feels like a damn party alright. .

Dogfish Head Brewery

Sixty-One IPA

Snow White frosting over vodka-cran colored beer with cirrus drifts. Cartoon stubble lacing. Raspberry, blackberry, grape-y with blood orange, dried orange, red grapefruit, hibiscus and citrus crowd. Lovely entry, reminiscent of bandol rose, with a suggestion of pink lemonade, bay, orange pith, lemongrass, and cardamom. Dry and satisfying in all respects. Carrots and cran-mint come to mind. Festive and bright!! #dogfishhead #dogfishheadbrewing #dogfishheadsixtyone #beer #bier #biere #birra #ale #ipa #syrahipa #continuallyhopped #hops — 2 months ago

Celebration Fresh Hop IPA

Must admit to an affinity for this seasonal! Such a fresh and clean nose of malt and pine-y hops, lemon, lime and orange peels, candied ginger, and coriander. Vibrant mouthfeel, accentuated by citrus action, cola, savory, coffee oil, buckwheat bring the bitter, and the whole never deviates from ‘beer’ balance because the fresh hop refuses to overwhelm. . #beer #biere #birra #bier #sierranevada #sierranevadabrewing #sierranevadacelebration #celebrationipa #ipa #freshhopipa #chicoca #2019beer #winterbeer — 2 months ago

Parish Brewing Company

Ghost In The Machine Imperial IPA

Pure, white grapefruit juice color, with whipped-to-peaks egg white top that sticks for sheet lacing of anatomical figure silhouettes. Bright orange, sweet grapefruit and peach blossom scents. Magnolia, jasmine and daisy perfumes. Perfectly balanced mouthfeel delivers grapefruit-creamsicle with bits of lemon peel in a marmalade pudding entry. This beauty turns on lime and juicy grapefruit with a dash of white pepper, lemon oil, tangerine, and an awesome burst of vivacious and near-effervescent lemon tart and grapefruit soda. Ultimately holds true to beer with notes of barley, touch of malt, hop textures, lemongrass and fresh oregano. Really sexy ipa here, might improve with a little bottle rest too! Will revisit, if still available. #parishbrewing #parishbrewingco #ghostinthemachine #ghostinthemachinedipa #Labeer #beer #biere #birra #bier #ale #paleale #dankbeer #indiapaleale #ipa #dipa #doubleipa #broussardla #hops #abv — 2 months ago

75 Minute IPA

Red gold body with a Matisse sketched white ring and merengue peaked, sheet-lacing. Clean citrus nose exhibiting clementine and dried pineapple, Meyer lemon and a faint funky-persimmon and lotus. There is something pleasant about the naturalness of the aromatics here with dried lemon verbena and Calloway seed. Orange and tangerine eclipse the lemon on the palate and add sweet grapefruit, and a clove note that tightly binds the whole. The bitterness being mitigated by the maple was brilliant here! Makes the Dogfish 90 seem clunky in comparison. I am a fan of this manifestation. Careful crafting and a simple solution to tune aggressive hops. There is no maple flavor btw. .

Founders Brewing Company

Double Trouble IPA

It’s been three years since my last review of this little slice of double trouble. Loose and thorny crown of creamy white with cartoon bone lacing plus bubble font. Golden overall, but reddish tinges turn it pink. Banana bread, with honey butter, a bit of molasses and orange marmalade scented, but the breakfast stops there. Healthy dollops of of honey buoy herbs de Provence, golden apple, juniper sharpness, lemon-arabica, pecan, and extra lavender. .

Toppling Goliath Brewing Company

King Sue Double India Pale Ale

Hazy look of grapefruit with a few grenadine drops, and thick white crown that sits the throne like foam. Ladybug lacing. Sweet grapefruit, tangerine and lemon marmalade smells laced in leek, and green onion filaments; a healthy navel orange and persimmon. Buttered rum creaminess, turns pale with pith of grapefruit and Meyer lemon, then twists in a hint of pepper, lime peel and nutmeg pudding. The central theme is creamy orange, but porcupines with darts of intense citrus. Dangerously poised and hard to wrap your arms around. #topplinggoliath #fieldmuseum #topplinggoliathbrewingco #kingsue #kingsuedipa #ipa #doubleipa #dipa #beer #bier #biere #birra #iabeer #iowabeer #decorahia # — 2 months ago

Wichita Brewing Company & Pizzeria

V-6 IPA

Blood orange, cypress bark, and dried grapefruit skin. Dried peas, grilled pineapple, dried, folded hops that smack of poblano. Spiced mouthfeel resonates with nutmeg and brown sugar malt suggestions, bit-o-honey, slight bitter turn on the follow-up that feels like dried lavender and chicory side hustles. Very good ipa all in all. Feels sessionable initially, but definitely dragging its abv across your face rug. #wichitabrewing #vsixipa #ipa #indiapaleale #ale #beer #biere #bier #birra #cerveza #ksbeer #wichitabrewingco #wichitaks — a month ago

Yakimaniac IPA

Gilt gold and star bright crown of egg foam white. Soft grapefruit, tangerine, orange, and lemon twist bursts, candied ginger and lemon merengue nose commotion. Ripe lemon, ripe lime, pink grapefruit, raspberry ketones, beeswax, lemon ice, frozen jalepeno, and clean berry taste, with lemongrass presiding. #freestatebrewing #freestate #lfk #lawrencekansas #ipa #yakimaniac #indiapaleale #ale #beer #bier #biere #birra #hops — a month ago

Limited Edition Mangoes On The Run Mango IPA

Pugnacious head puffs it’s billowy chest. Egg white and and foamy, with a tea colored translucence. Wave top lacing. Orange blossom and mango with grapevine and toast smells leads to sweet barley malt and tangerine. The mango is strong in the mouth, but not sweet. Tons of lemon oil, lime peel, and sweet grapefruit from the hops come out, but still it shows restraint (literally the earmark of every beer style these folks make) and balance. It is fruity, but never steers far from the earthy realm of beer. Opening and closing within the canon, and doing so with an ingredient far from its shores. Great work! Great Scot! .
